Going to lose this weight for good!

My name is Amy and I am a single mother of a 4 year old little boy. I work full time for AAA. When I have down time, I enjoy reading, crocheting, watching movies, taking walks, spending time outdoors, singing karaoke, and relaxing!

My name is Amy and I am a single mother of a 4 year old little boy. I work full time for AAA. When I have down time, I enjoy reading, crocheting, watching movies, taking walks, spending time outdoors, singing karaoke, and relaxing!

I have struggled with my weight all my life. I have issues with binge eating. Over the years I have gained and lost many many pounds. In the last couple weeks I have realized that my health needs to be front and center in my life. That being said, I have refocused my priorities, and have commited to eating right and getting in as much physical activity as possible every day.

I have re-evaluated my weight loss goals. I have a tendency to go crazy with healthy eating and exercise for a few weeks, and then it begins to taper off, after I have lost a few pounds. Of course I always end up gaining it back. I have decided this time around to set mini goals, instead of looking at the big picture. I think smaller goals within a smaller time frame will be easier to stick with, and will make my long term goal more attainable!


Here are my goals for 2015:
1. find time for AT LEAST 30 mins of fitness per day, whether that be walking outside, going to the gym, or doing fitness videos at home.

2. Drink (and track) 8+ cups of water daily. I have noticed for quite awhile now that my skin is dry, (more than it should be during the winter) and I seem to have a slump of energy during the afternoon. I really think that drinking more water will help with both of these issues.

3. Aim for a 2lb/week weight loss. Slow and steady.

4. Be more mindful of what I am eating. Stop eating when I'm not hungry. Eliminate fast food and pop. Cut portion sizes.
